Canadian wilderness

With many species and fishing locations we can customize any adventure for you.

Our fishing trips starts from Fort St. John, B.C. or from Dunlevy boat launch 30 km west of Hudson's Hope.

After 1 hour on the water, we arrive at our comfortable lodge where a cozy cabin and home made meal is waiting for you. We are quite famous for our cooking and we promise you that you won't go hungry! 

After a hearty hot breakfast we pack our gear and head for the lake. Some of the best fishing spots are only 15 min. by boat from the lodge. After a warm meal, evenings will be spent around fire pit enjoying good stories and warm (or cold) beverage. 


Depending on how the fishing and the weather plays out, we deside when and where to go. We have so many options to give you an adventure of a lifetime, no matter if you prefer fishing from one of our boats on Williston Lake and it's many inlets or in our rivers. With cabins and tent sites all over our vast area, we can overnight and explore the many great fishing sites, where only you will be fishing.

The Lake Trout is a very slow growing, cold water specie that can reach impressive sizes. They are quite ravenous, and eat all other species the can catch. In the spring, we find them in shallow waters eating on easy game fish prey. As the summer progresses, and the water warms, they go deeper, and anglers must change their tactics. They can be a little finicky to catch but when the bite is on, your chances of catching the fish of a life time are great… and if it’s a smaller one that bites ….  Very great shore lunch ….



Rainbow Trout is one of the prettiest trout we have at Williston Lake Outfitters. Beautiful blue/green on their backs to silver side and belly. Along their sides a nice band of pink. They are located both in lake and in our rivers and streams. Very common to catch using a variety of lures and flys. Very good for a shore lunch or in a smoker.



Bull Trout is common in all streams in northern British Columbia. At Williston Lake Outfitters, we have never the less, caught some very big ones in the lake, not common but they are there. It is a very aggressive specie, that chases just about any lure or big streamer fly. A very delicious eating fish!



Kokanee is the non-migrating form of Sockeye Salmon. Like all pacific salmon, they will die after their first spawning. Kokanee has blue backs and silver sides. When compared to other trout, they have finer scales, larger eyes, and deeply forked tail. Kokanee is caught from spring to fall. The best fishing for Kokanee is during late spring when plankton blooms are more common. By that time, the Kokanee becomes more aggressive and will be found closer to the surface. Trolling, still fishing, and jigging is among the preferred ways to fish for the Kokanee.
